Although technically not more than a suburb we should really consider Ciudad Quesada as being a real town composed of more than 30,000 homes. Its population is about 15,000 inhabitants, which, as in the rest of the Costa Blanca, multiplies during the summer. And this is a truly international community, where the Spanish inhabitants are a minority. The Spaniards who have settled here have been attracted by the diversity of nationalities.
If you don't wish to, there is no need to leave Ciudad Quesada at all, as it houses a wide variety of bars, restaurants, shops, and even a brand-new shopping centre. In addition, the town is located in the midst of a beautiful hillside on which Ciudad Quesada has built a designer golf course, the "La Marquesa" course. But if you do leave Ciudad Quesada you will find everything close by; ten minutes away, and you have the wonderful beaches of Torrevieja and just a little farther away, you will find all that the province of Alicante can offer.
If your goal of settling in Spain is to learn the language and become a part of a Spanish community, Ciudad Quesada might not be the ideal environment for you. But if you prefer a charming environment with an international character where you can find all the comforts, while enjoying the beaches, leisure time and Spanish cuisine, please come to Ciudad Quesada. Soon enough, you will be integrated into this welcoming community.
